This is just point-blank awesome. As not into Valentine’s Day as I (Producer Dave) am, this would make even Grumpy Cat smile.

James Jones and Melissa Degesso-Jones of Lake Mary, Florida met two years ago, on Valentine’s Day. This year, Melissa is giving James a Valentine’s Day gift that will put the rest of us to shame. Melissa and James are both going into surgery so she can give him one of her KIDNEYS. James has been in renal failure for a long time, so Melissa got tested to see if she was a match for James. Melissa said that she never had any doubt that she’d be a match.

The surgeon who will perform the operation said, quote, “Melissa is making the rest of us look bad. Most of us buy an expensive box of candy and call it a day.”

Take THAT, Hallmark. You can’t start selling chocolates in kidney-shaped boxes now, that doesn’t count.
